Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila from Book Journey, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind.

Finished Last Week:

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King The Strain: Volume 1 by Guillermo Del Toro, Mike Huddleston, David Lapham, Dan Jackson Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness

Did Not Finish:

The Wet and The Dry by Lawrence Osborne

The premise behind the book, comparing dry cultures with wet ones is intriguing. Unfortunately, Mr. Osborne spends most of the book drunk or at least working his way towards it. He is also a complete snob. He lavishly details the luxurious hotels in which he resides, the extravagant amounts of money he spends on one drink, and the expensive cuisine he regularly eats along with the ridiculously expensive alcohol. This makes me question just how serious he is about wanting to truly delve into the two cultures and come to decent conclusions. When he wakes up with a massive hangover and no memory of how he got into his hotel room nor what he did the previous night, I was done. His obvious bias, and alcoholism, make this a difficult book to finish.
